Milonga del Angel - played by me
This piece by Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla has become one of his most beloved and most frequently performed pieces. The “milonga” was a predecessor of the tango and while tangos developed in more urban areas, the milonga was more rural in origin. Milongas also were usually slower and sadder than tangos. The “Milonga del Angel” is filled with a feeling of aching sadness, at timed tinged with a hint of danger.
